Next Donation Box

I had another box ready to send but it didn't have a destination until the other day.  It will be sent to Kelly at Bella Bambina Knits to go to a hospital in New York.  I ordered gift tags to go on all the larger things I make. 

My latest articles are Santa Hats for the babies.  Aren't they cute.   Would love to see them on the babies.

New fleece

Last week I made a raid on Joann's for fleece.  I finally got it all cut and ready for the serger.  We are now into winter prints.  They are so cute and soft.  Then today I went and bought more yarn at AC Moores.  Heaven forbid should I run out (that will never happen).  My family will vouch for that as we sit here looking at the plastic tote of yarn that is so neatly packed to overfull.  Oh that isn't the only one.  So my projects continue.  If anyone has a NICU in need let me know.  In the mean time...

For Sale

I have decided to see if anyone would be interested in purchasing a Preemie gown.  They are in the picture to the right.  $12.99.  It can go through Pay Pal just like the donations.  Anyone interested?

Anyone wishing to send a donation can do so with the donation button.  It is also Pay Pal and very simple.  Postage , yarn and fleece cost.  Any help is appreciated.
